Final preparations underway for Eads All-School Reunion
The reunion will be held in conjunction with the Kiowa County Fair and Rodeo events on Friday and Saturday, September 9-10. The first reunion was held in 1987 and the event has been held every five years since. This year’s reunion will have a different venue as most of the events will be held on Maine Street on Saturday evening.
There will be a reunion registration table available at the fair breakfasts on both Thursday and Friday mornings. Stop by the table and update your contact information, register for the cornhole tournament, and pick up a wristband for the Saturday night event. There is no charge for admission into the event.
Below is a brief overview of the scheduled events.
